12.45 Winning Post Bookmakers Bristol ‘National Hunt’ Maiden Hurdle (3) 2m5f141y

Timeform Top Rated:
138p 3. CRIQ ROCK Alan King Wayne Hutchinson
131p 2. BURST YA BUBBLE Seamus Mullins Andrew Thornton
130p 9. LAGAVARA Nigel Twiston-Davies Jamie Bargary (3)

Analyst’s Verdict:
Talented bumper performer Criq Rock hasn’t quite got the job done over hurdles as yet, but his experience could prove key up against some interesting newcomers, so he’s taken to get off the mark at the third time of asking over obstacles. Point-winners Topofthegame and Lovenormoney rank as the main dangers.

1.20 Stella Artois Chase (Novices’ Limited Handicap) (3) 2m192y

Timeform Top Rated:
150p 7. BACK BY MIDNIGHT Emma Baker Jamie Bargary (3)
149+ 5. MISTER SPINGSPRONG Brian Ellison Sam Twiston-Davies
148 6. RED DEVIL STAR Suzy Smith Jack Sherwood (3)

Analyst’s Verdict:
If Back By Midnight turns up in the same mood as when winning at Sandown a fortnight ago there’s every chance he can make all again in a race that doesn’t look all that strong. I’dliketheoption travelled as if still ahead of his mark last time, so he’s considered along with the consistent Red Devil Star.

1.55 Sky Bet Supreme Trial Kennel Gate Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 2) (1) 1m7f152y

Timeform Top Rated:
152p 2. THOMAS CAMPBELL Nicky Henderson Barry Geraghty
149p 1. CAPITAINE Paul Nicholls Sam Twiston-Davies
148 3. KEEP IN LINE Alan King Wayne Hutchinson

Analyst’s Verdict:
Thomas Campbell did well to win in the manner he did over C&D last time, the run of the race not showing him to maximum effect, and, with further improvement forthcoming, he should be able to keep his unbeaten record over hurdles intact. A case can be made for all 6 runners, though Captain Forez and Lough Derg Spirit may prove the chief threats.

2.30 Mitie Noel Novices’ Chase (Grade 2) (1) 2m5f8y

Timeform Top Rated:
157 2. ROCK THE KASBAH Philip Hobbs Richard Johnson
156p 1. POLITOLOGUE Paul Nicholls Sam Twiston-Davies
145 3. ROYAL VACATION Colin Tizzard Aidan Coleman

Analyst’s Verdict:
Politologue created a deep impression on chase debut at Haydock last month, looking a smart prospect as he forged clear of his rivals, and he can take this step up in class in his stride to provide Paul Nicholls with a third successive win in this contest. Chase-debutant Captain Chaos has the physique to do well in this sphere, and is feared most.

3.05 Mitie Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle (3) 2m5f141y

Timeform Top Rated:
139 7. ABBREVIATE Kim Bailey Mikey Hamill (6)
137p 11. HASTRUBAL Henry Daly Stan Sheppard
136 5. LORD OF THE ISLAND Fergal O’Brien Brodie Hampson (6)

Analyst’s Verdict:
This is wide open but Hastrubal has caught the eye in a trio of qualifying hurdle runs to date, particularly at Huntingdon in November. He rates very much the type to do better now handicapping and gets the narrow vote. Kalondra and Ritual of Senses are 2 likely threats, whilst a market move for Abbreviate would need to be viewed positively.

3.40 Neptune Investment Management Championship Standard Open National Hunt Flat (Listed) (1) 1m7f152y

Timeform Top Rated:
125 3. BOREHAM BILL Ben Pauling Tom Cannon
124 7. IMPERIAL ELOQUENCE Fergal O’Brien Conor Shoemark
120 5. CLAIMANTAKINFORGAN Nicky Henderson Jeremiah McGrath

Analyst’s Verdict:
The Cheltenham listed race in which Boreham Bill and Imperial Eloquence occupied second and third positions last month is the best form on offer, with Ben Pauling’s 4-y-o taken to come out on top. There are plenty of promising sorts in opposition though, headed by Potters Story and Claimantakinforgan.


If you are potentially new to our service and a betting fan interested in horse-racing, here’s an introduction to our service.

We are ex-owners who have retained links into a handful of ‘gambling stables’ throughout the North of England……

We do not give long lists of short priced selections…..our prices are all at 4/1 (5.0) and above….it may only be 3 – 4 solid bets per week……but most of our advices are EW value at 8’s +

We have been active for over 3 years and only went to a paid service 18 months ago following other services and FB pages ‘ripping off’ our selections and selling them as there own.

We advocate single stakes betting of around 2.5{70aeb3532cb26dbe277d25ea128ebb74de84b9bd22e1583b0eb1b73768e061f6} each-way of the total betting bank…ensuring we always have 20 bets in hand at any one time.

Members receive newsletters well in advance of racing in order to get the best early morning prices…..8.00am on a weekday and by 10.00am on a weekend

It’s not just a named selection…there’s the rationale as well with our content……

Again, our charges are just £10/month……no long term contracts or £75 for the year that can be made to via PayPal or there is a subscription button at the bottom of the page.

We don’t charge extra for any festivals….it’s just part of the service…..why not give us a try and register any time for a months selections?

We published a pre-season ’25 to follow’ and those have already yielded winners such as Flash Fire at 25’s, Intense Tango at 12’s…Cartmell Cleave at 10’s, plus may others……new members will receive the 25 NH to follow as a FREE download pdf when signing up with the welcome email

…..just follow the link at the bottom of the page to subscribe at our linked membership site….and receive a month’s subscription starting with our next newsletter….
